Right of access as per Art. 15 GDPR: In accordance with Art. 15 GDPR, you have the right to obtain from us information about your personal data processed by us. You should provide precise information on your request in the application so that it makes it easier to compile the data required.

Data collected on our website

This website uses cookies. Cookies are text files which are placed and stored on a computer/computer system of a user via an Internet browser. Various information can be stored in a cookie. A cookie is used primarily to store information on a user (or the equipment on which the cookie is stored) during or also after the visit to a website. Cookies are referred to as “session cookies” or “transient cookies” if they are deleted after the user leaves a website and closes the browser. Such a cookie stores, for example, the contents of a shopping basket in an online shop or a login status. Cookies are referred to as “permanent” or “persistent” if they continue to be stored even after the browser has been closed. Thus, for example, the login status can be stored if the user visits the website again several days later. Also, the interests of the user may be stored in such a cookie to be used for reach measurement or marketing purposes. Cookies are referred to as “third-party cookies” if they are offered by other parties than the controller who operates the website (otherwise, i.e. if they are only the controller’s cookies, they are referred to as “first-party cookies”).


If a user does not want cookies to be stored on his computer, he must deactivate the relevant option in the system settings of his browser. It is also possible to delete cookies already stored via the system settings of the browser. The blocking of cookies can lead to functional impairment of this website.

The disclosure of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below does not take place. We disclose your personal data to third parties only if:

  • you have given your express consent to this in accordance with Art. 6, Para. 1 (a), sentence 1 GDPR;
  • disclosure in accordance with Art. 6, Para. 1 (f) sentence 1 GDPR is required for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in non-disclosure of your data;

If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or outside the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this takes place within the scope of utilising the services of third parties by disclosure or transmission of data to third parties, this shall be done only if it is done to meet our (pre)-contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests.

Unless expressly stated in this Data Privacy Statement, the data stored by us are erased as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and the erasure does not conflict with the legal obligation to retain such data. This applies, for example, to data which must be stored for reasons of commercial or tax law (e.g. Art. 257 German Commercial Code, Art. 147, Para. 1 German Tax Code - retention for up to 10 years). If the data are not erased because they are required for other legally permissible purposes, their processing will be restricted. This means the data will be restricted and not processed for any other purpose.

Data protection provisions for the use of YouTube

The data controller has integrated components of YouTube on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal which allows the free placing of video clips and the free viewing, rating and commenting by other users of these. YouTube permits the publication of all types of videos so that complete films and TV broadcasts, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be called up via the Internet portal.


The operating company of YouTube is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.


By calling up one of the pages of this website which is operated by the controller responsible for data processing and into which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the relevant YouTube component automatically causes the Internet browser on the IT device of the data subject to download the relevant YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google will gain knowledge on which specific page of our website has been visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is simultaneously logged into YouTube, YouTube will recognise on calling up a page containing a YouTube video which specific page of our website has been visited by the data subject. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and linked to the YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google always receive the information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our web page if the data subject is simultaneously logged into YouTube when calling up our web page; this takes place independently of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not wish that this information is transmitted to YouTube and Google, the data subject can prevent this transmission by logging out of the YouTube account before calling up our web page.


The privacy policy published by YouTube is available under and gives information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.
